IT Group Policy Documents

Clarborough & Welham IT Group have been providing computer-based tuition for well over a decade and are now one of the biggest providers of computer tuition in the area. Based in Clarborough Village Hall (DN22 9LN), the Group provides sessions designed for absolute beginners through to more accomplished IT users. Prices are kept low to provide maximum access.

Clarborough & Welham IT Group is aiming to restart Windows 10-based computer classes from Tuesday 22nd June, 2021.

This is, of course, dependent on the final stage of the current Covid-19 Road Map which is due to be reached on 21st June. Lessons will resume in our usual location in Clarborough Village Hall at our traditional times of either 13:30 on Tuesdays or 10:00 on Wednesdays and fees also remain the same at £20 for a full five-week programme on either of the above days.

Current planning is to start the first block of classes with an extended ‘Gardeners Question time’ session during which class members will set the priorities for the rest of the following classes.

The Enrolment Form here contains a lot of useful information about the Group and its support. You will also need a completed copy of this form to hand over in your first lesson.

Time to get into Windows 10? Microsoft withdrew all support - including security ‘patches’ for Windows 7 on 14th January, 2020. If you’re still using Windows 7 come to our classes to find out how easy it is to become familiar with Windows 10.

Microsoft also announced the end to all support for their Office 2010 suites from 13th October, 2020. Why not find out about the alternatives to Microsoft Office? We offer tuition in Apache OpenOffice and Document Foundation LibreOffice - and both are free applications too - see Open Source at top of this page.

Want local IT tuition - to improve your personal use of IT or improve your employment skills? Clarborough & Welham IT Group have classes on Tuesday afternoons (13:30-15:00) and Wednesday mornings (10:00-11:30). Classes try to focus on members’ needs - every session begins with a ‘Gardeners Question Time’ so you can guide the topics covered. 5-week ‘blocks’ cost just £20.
